Islander "Fireball" Northport Hi-Beat Automatic Dive Watch with Sunset Orange Ripple Dial #ISL-196
Introducing our first hi-beat dive watch, the Islander Northport. Named after a historic maritime village on the North Shore of Long Island, the Northport evokes a feeling of life on the water. Gazing at the dial, you will immediately be captivated by the stunning ripple pattern that has been embossed on the dial - inspired by the Long Island Sound.
The case of the Northport is a very wearable 40.5mm in diameter and the thickness of the watch is a mere 12.5mm. The lug tip to lug tip is kept at 47mm, and you will not find any overhang thanks to the use of negative endlinks. Integrating smoothly into the case is a fully brushed bracelet. You will find that not only is the bracelet brushed on the top, but also on the sides. This matches the brushing on the top and sides of the case, including the logo screw down crown.
The sunset orange dial has polished gun-metal applied markers which have been generously filled with C3 Super-LumiNova for a green glow in low light conditions. The 6:00 date is framed in gun-metal as well. The hands are polished gun-metal, also treated with the same lume.
Powering the Islander Northport is a Miyota 9015 movement, which beats at 28,800 beats per hour resulting in a seconds hand that ticks 8 times per second – a very smooth appearance. The movement can be handwound and hacks (seconds hand stops when you set the time) and has a power reserve of about 40 hours.
If you decide to use it as a dive watch, which it is perfectly suitable for thanks to its 200 meters of water resistance, you will use the functional unidirectional 120 click coin-edge ratcheting bezel. The bezel insert is sapphire, which follows the same orange color scheme. The sapphire bezel insert will resist scratching, as will the flat anti-reflective sapphire crystal over the dial.
Securing the Northport to your wrist is a solid link, solid endlink bracelet that is easily sized with screws. It tapers from 20mm at the lug, to 16mm at the clasp. Lastly, you will find a fully milled 6 position micro-adjust clasp to get that “just-perfect” fit.
The Northport is compatible with Seiko SKX007 bezels, inserts and crystals.
